Dear brothers and sisters, we are not each other’s enemies.

We must not be enemies. Our enemy is not flesh and blood. Fear, want, and ignorance are our enemies. Bigotry, intolerance, and racism are our enemies. They must be overcome not with clenched fists and raised voices, but with the open hand of compassion, and comforting whispers. SC

The Republican's new alternative to health care

The word is out on the new alternative to health care.  One would think we would become weary of forever bending over and bowing to the will of the wealthy and privileged, regardless of its devastating effects on the 99%. Remarkably, some continue to insist they thrive despite the abuse.  While I question their judgment, you have to admire their veracity.

God’s magnificent planet, and all its creatures great and small

There are those among us who appear to believe they have found a new savior in the form of Donald Trump.  As for me and my house, we still serve Christ.  In doing so, we will continue to defend and protect those who are least among us, God’s magnificent planet, and all its creatures great and small.  SC

Paris Climate Accord

Mr. Trump evidently feels that the efforts of the civilized world to preserve our planet for future generations represent an unaffordable expense.  One can only assume Mr. Trump is aware of some alternative planet which will be cheaper to protect from the devastating effects his administration is having on life on earth.  SC

As Christians, we’re called to “do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God”.  So, as a Christian, how does one promote Christ’s life changing message with all due humility?  In my humble opinion, the obedient pursuit of this commission requires not the belligerent derision and slander of the faith of others, but a gracious and amenable demonstration of the effectiveness of our own. Anything less is incompatible with God’s Word.  SC

Alternative Truth

Just as certainly as advances in technology created the information age; the abuse of that technology has created the age of misinformation.  Truth is defined as a verifiable and undisputed fact, proposition or principle.  Truth is not someone’s personal perversion or misinterpretation of facts, but the actual, unadulterated facts themselves.  While someone’s personal perspective will affect their perception or comprehension of facts, perspective and comprehension do not change the facts.  The pursuit of knowledge and truth has benefits. Adherence to the alternative to truth has consequences.  SC

An alternative planet?

So, along with health care and public schools, now they're doing away with the Environmental Protection Agency. Its only the planet at stake. Surely they can find some alternative planet to go along with their alternative facts, their alternative truth, their alternative reality, and their alternative love of God and Creation.  SC
